Set the path to the unzipped Asset Handler folder.

Modify ns_Asset_Handler.json

Navigate to the Houdini 18.5 user folder (C:\Users\YOU\Documents\houdini18.5), create a “packages” folder. Copy the ns_Asset_Handler.json into it.

Copy ns_Asset_Handler.json
With a proper path, the Panel appears in Houdini.

I recommend to set the Asset Handler in the Python Panel Editor. Especially for code changes and quick reloading.


Set a Library (can be an empty folder). Or set a proper path to a $ASSET_LIB variable.

Naming convention for the asset types subfolder in your Library

Settings will be stored C:\Users\YOU\Documents\houdini18.5\plugins\ns_AssetHandler\Preferences.json
